11. The unions created the prevalent working conditions over the years

 

with dues, strikes and most of all backing lawmakers who are worker friendly and to continue that, they need paying members.
What is going on is, big business is trying to DE FUND unions because that is the main revenue stream to fight against them.
Kill the unions, is their real goal, to strip workers right, to fair wages, working conditions, safety and hazardous environmental and health. issues. The active union worker is asked to give free ride to non dues paying members who are not the ones who sacrificed and funded the unions to fight the political fight for them. Unions are for treating every worker fairly and workers should all participate in insuring the union is treated equitably by every worker. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish, don't unilaterally disarm, just when the fight is beginning. The solution is more unions, not less, thirty years of middle class decline proves it.
